The "baz" was a kind of "bass saz", made by sticking a cello fretboard, bridge and strings (salvaged from a local skip!) onto an old saz - surprisingly effective as an acoustic bass. The words are no doubt Emma's.
A little bit of splicing and EQ has been used to improve the overall sound.
The geometry of the Abbey, particularly the Lady Chapel is fascinating, and has been explored by writers such as John Michell. This chapel is the supposed site of the first Christian Church built in the British Isles, built, according to legend, by Joseph of Arimathea. Here is an introductory website.
Some more recordings from the Lady Chapel can be found here.
